National Tyre Fitting Training Program announced

The Hunter Valley Mining Solutions Centre will be home to the National Tyre Fitting Training Program per an announcement made recently by Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia (BMSA).

In its inaugural year, the program has been launched to educate individuals looking to pursue a career in the off-road tyre industry at an entry level.

The six week program aims to equip those undertaking it with the skills required to work at the highest industry standard and safest level in tyre fitter development.

It commenced at the start of the month.

BMSA has confirmed a second program will run later in the year with an additional three to four programs expected to run next year.

All program participants are new to the tyre fitting industry and as such require additional time and resources to learn the fundamentals of tyre fitting, including extensive knowledge of BMSA products and services along with industry best practices from experienced tyre fitters.

The formal qualifications obtained, according to BMSA, are industry recognised.

Workplace Health and Safety and Environment, Certificate II Surface Extractions, Rim and Wheel training, Truck and Bus tyres, Forklift Accreditation and the modules 'Bridgestone Essence' and 'Our Way to Serve' are all part of the Tyre Fitting Program.

From 2020 there will be an increase in the courses run by BMSA to further invest and upskill our workforce through Procedural and Systems Training and Leadership and Technical Training courses.

"Additionally, BMSA offers training services to our customers improving their knowledge of Tyre Management to maximise tyre life and a reduction in their Total Cost of Ownership," said Steve Niho CEO Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia in a statement.
